We need to stop 'managing' change ­ and start driving it. Changenomics is the ultimate equation for driving change and making it stick!

  • Attract, engage and retain the next generation of workers
  • Thrive in the workplace of the future

Fl!p: The Truth Around Unleashing Innovation

There has never been a more important time to drive innovation in our businesses. As markets tighten and get more competitive, we are all under pressure to do more, with less, faster. But for too many companies, innovation is just a ‘value’ or a ‘buzzword’, not a practice that we all engage in every day. Based on research for global best-seller Flip!, this session takes a case-study rich approach to uncovering the real opportunities for innovation in your business.

Key Outcomes

  • Identify the five drivers of innovation in your business and how to leverage them
  • Unpack compelling strategies to get every individual in your team to approach work with an innovation-mindset
  • Outline practical, real strategies for creating an environment that drives innovation

Making Money in the Cracks: The Truth About creating value through Collaboration

The only way to win in the competitive market is through innovation, and collaboration done right drives innovation. Having created The Productivity Project for IBM, Dom Thurbon knows first-hand how to move from a discussion about collaboration to actually using it to create value in your business.

Key Outcomes

  • Money gets made in the ‘white space’ inside and outside the business, not inside your silos
  • Collaboration is a means to an end; it’s about value creation, not consensus
  • Collaboration is a behaviour, and to make it happen we need to drive behaviour change

Talent Magnets: The Truth About the Future of Talent

The war for talent is over… talent won. The real way to attract, engage and retain top talent is to create inspiring workplace experiences through collaboration, career progression and story. Drawing on first-hand experience leading a global business, Dom Thurbon will unpack cutting-edge strategies for leveraging human capital.

Key Outcomes

  • We focus on the wrong things: attraction, engagement and retention are outputs, focus on the drivers… leadership, culture, and the work itself
  • People take jobs, but leave managers
  • Needs trumps diversity – focus on fairness, meaning, growth and inclusion, not generations, gender and background

Work 3.0: The Truth About the Future of Work

We overestimate the changes we will see in one year, but underestimate the changes that will occur in the next five. The shift is inevitable – you can either be early or late, it’s up to you. Having partnered with companies like Microsoft, Apple and IBM – who are quite literally inventing the future of work – this session looks at real-world case studies of what is happening today that will define what you do tomorrow.

Key Outcomes

  • The irony of the ‘future’ of work is that it is happening today; companies are already extracting value from adopting new ways of working
  • The role of leaders and managers in the future is amplified, not diminished – we must build capability today for work tomorrow
  • Work is not a ‘place’ anymore, it’s about value creation through collaboration, not attendance by individuals
